We had 14-year old Carly Fleischmann on our show last Friday – an amazing girl with autism. She also contributed to this blog and sent the following note to us:
Dear Mr. King,
I would like to thank you for having me on your show.
I liked the show but I have some other views I would like to share with you. You had your guest talk about the vaccines and how it effects typical kids to have autism. However in my eyes it's the children who already have autism that need their story told. Not the ones that don't. We need help. We need people to believe. We need people to understand. We need people to listen.
In three and a half days people believed in me enough to have over 4200 sign my petition to tell my story. I still think it's a very important one. I love the fact you had me on your show and by doing this I believe that you believe. I was told once no one will ever listen till some one stands up. Well I am standing and I was wondering if you would stand beside me. It's been a hard process for me to get to the point that I am able to spell. I believe we all have an inner voice. We just need to find away to get it out.
You said that there are a lot of things about autism you have not gotten to but you will try to touch on a fair bit. Let me be the first to open those doors.
Your optimistic and able to back it up believer,
Oh Thank you again for every thing.
